A child pornographer has been sentenced to 40 years in jail after she filmed herself abusing a six-year-old boy.
Appearing in a Jacksonville, Florida court on Aug. 30, 2018, Christine Alyce Slayman, formerly of Mechanicsville, Virginia pled guilty to two counts of producing child pornography.
Slayman, 28, pled guilty to producing 18 videos of her either abusing the youngster or instructing him to engage in sex acts.
But she said she was forced into it by her boyfriend, who has not yet been indicted.
Investigators say Slayman abused the infant over several months in 2015, when she was living in King William, Virginia. She made videos of the abuse on her phone and brought them with her when she moved to Jacksonville.
Officers raided her home after receiving a tip-off, and she was arrested after the videos were discovered.
Defense attorney Dale Carson, said his client she was ‘critically instructed’ by her boyfriend to abuse the child and record it.
‘Following [her boyfriend’s] orders, Ms. Slayman then sent those videos from her cell phone to [him],’ Carson wrote, according to NBC12.
Slayman’s lawyer told the court that she had only made the disgusting child porn videos after being ‘strictly ordered’ by her boyfriend, and that he has yet to be indicted
‘Ms. Slayman immediately deleted the video off her cell phone. Unknown to Ms. Slayman, [her boyfriend] copied those videos onto a USB thumb drive.
‘Later, [her boyfriend] personally brought the thumb drive to Jacksonville in 2017 when the couple moved from Virginia.
‘[Slayman’s boyfriend’s] purpose in retaining the videos was to later extort behavior consistent with his desires.
‘[Slayman] gave as much information to the Government as she possibly could in hopes of [her boyfriend] also being held responsible for his role in these actions, though he has not yet been indicted.’
“[I’m] speechless,” said a former classmate. “One of my best friends sent me the article last night and I felt like I was going to puke because you never expect to see people you know, that you grew up in the same hometown as you, do things like that.”
Department of Justice sources said the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office found the videos in Slayman’s Jacksonville home after receiving a tip.
“Slayman had filmed herself engaged in sexual activity with the child, which included Slayman directing the child to engage in sex acts,” the U.S. Attorney’s Office stated.
“Federal agents located 18 different video files of Slayman sexually abusing the child.”
My reaction was shock,” said another former classmate. “I saw the story [from Jacksonville] and googled her name … [I] became more and more disgusted until I had to stop reading once it got into specific details because of how bad they were.”
She will now serve four decades behind bars, with the rest of her life spent under supervision after release.
Carson requested Slayman’s sentence to be no longer than 15 years. A federal judge sentenced her to 40 years.
Since Slayman’s arrest in 2018, the victim has been in another family member’s custody.
“She robbed him [the boy], of his entire childhood,” a classmate said. “He will never get that back. Her selfish actions will have an impact on him for the rest of his life.”
James Spero, an agent with Homeland Security, said: ‘While today’s sentencing marks an end to the investigation and prosecution of this criminal, it is important to remember that a child will carry the scars of this crime for their lifetime.’
